Mothers’ Day is all about celebrating mums, but that doesn’t mean you necessarily have to spend all day with your kids!
Many Mums choose to host or attend Mothers’ Day Morning Teas with friends and family instead of a traditional big roast dinner with all the trimmings.
If you are hosting a Mothers’ Day Morning Tea, or you’re planning on attending one and need to bring a plate, here are a few ideas to get you started.
1. Chicken Vol Au Vents
For something fancy, simple and savoury – you can’t go past the good old fashion Vol Au Vent – and these delicious Chicken versions are fantastic! You can make one Chicken Vol Au Vent per person – or make mini ones!
2. Home Made Lemon and Coconut Cake
Mum will simply LOVE this delicious Home Made Lemon and Coconut Cake – its’ really easy to make (you can even make it in advance and freeze it until Mother’s Day) – and serve fat slices with a little butter. Delicious!
These crisp delicious biscuits are really old school. And if you can possibly find some amazing homemade jam – they are even better!!! These are particularly good with Rosella Jam – yummy!
Oh, you haven’t even tried fudge until you have tried this amazingly decadent and rich recipe. Not only is it delicious for a Mother’s Day table, but it also makes for a good gift too! Add some salt flakes to enhance the flavour even more!
Raw and vegan foods are more popular than ever at the moment – and this recipe for Raw Vegan Lime Cheesecake is both easy and scrumptious! Mum will love it!
If the kids want to get involved in Mother’s Day and want to bake Mum a cake – this is the recipe to give them – it’s really easy – and will still be edible enough for Mum to enjoy!
These are my personal favourite – and I’ve been making this recipe for as long as I can remember. They are best made in a food processor – if you have one – it makes it so much easier. They are super nutty and crunchy on the outside and gooey in the centre. Biscuit perfection!
There is probably nothing better on a cool day than a fresh sausage roll straight from the oven. That’s why this is perfect for Mother’s Day. Name one single person that dooesn’t love a good sausage roll!
